Washington, Jefferson, Madison & Monroe "Riedel" Martini Glass

Washington, Jefferson, Madison & Monroe "Riedel" Martini Glass

The stem of this "Riedel" crystal martini glass contains wood taken from; George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison & James Monroe trees from their estates.

White Mulberry Tree: Washington states in his diary that he planted five of the Mulberries in Serpentine Walk around the Bowling Green on the 28th of February 1785. The tree stands today at Mount Vernon, Historical Woods Of America Inc. was able to reclaim a very limited amount from a large branch that came off in a windstorm. 

Tulip Poplar Tree : The original Tulip Poplar off the Southwest corner of Thomas Jefferson's home in Monticello, is one of the grandest specimens of its kind. In terms of age(200 years old), size (over 120' tall with a trunk circumference of 22'), symmetry, vigor and historical association, this is one of the world's greatest trees. Unfortunatley, this tree had to be removed in 2008 for saftey reasons, after spending many years "hollow".      

Cedar of Lebanon: At the entrance to the Montpelier garden stands the largest of several Cedar of Lebanon trees.This tree is certainly identified as a true “witness tree”, having been planted during the life span of the fourth president, James Madison.In 1995, an ice storm brought this tree down.According to local traditions, there were three Cedar of Lebanon trees given to President James Madison by Lafayette as a gift from France in 1824. 

 Ash Lawn-  White Oak:  Monroe was certainly less opulent than his neighbor in Monticello-two miles down the road, (Thomas Jefferson)  Ash Lawn-Highland, as it was known in Monroe’s day was a true working estate.Tobacco, fruits and vegetables and even lumber production took place here.So it is that there were many White Oak trees, most cut down for lumber. Historical Woods of America was called in to prune a few large limbs from one of the remaining trees in March of 2008.This is certainly witness wood as it is estimated to be between three and four hundred years old. 

The stem of this glass contains a piece of each wood connected together as described above. Names of each President is hot stamped on wood. with Swarovski crystals and glass beads.

* Comes with COA & Documentation *
